This is damning re "evil twin" smear machine and also I would think increases Wheland's exposure re libel?…
I mean, I am not a layer, but the person Wheland falsely accused of being Kavanaugh's evil twin/the "real" rapist is not a public figure. Ergo, you only need to prove negligence, not reckless disregard or actual malaice. (tho' that standard too seems possible here)
and, it's not just Wheland that faces exposure but any news organization (or anyone really) who amplified?
^ I am not a "lawyer". Sometimes a layer.
Also have not seen NEARLY ENOUGH examination of this WaPo columnist's role in the "evil twin" excuse:…
Anyhoo, not sure why the Georgetown Prep guy who Wheland smeared wouldn't sue, and the discovery could be a bananas situation, pulling in god knows who (named a couple of contenders in this thread already)
Here's a constitutional law professor on Whelan's legal vulnerability:…
Among those who echoed or amplified these claims are @DouthatNYT and WaPo's
Also Dr. Blasey Ford is savvy enough to monitor her Linked In from the jump and that, it would seem to me, be indicative of someone likely to be a strong witness.
